ingredients

  • 1 empty mayonnaise jar
  • 14 cup boiling water
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 (1/4 ounce) package Kool-Aid
  • 1 barbecue skewer (we always used a clean nail, but RZ doesn't recognize "nail")
  • 1 length string
  • 1 pencil

directions

  • Fill a clean, empty mayonnaise jar with 1/4 cup boiling hot water. Slowly add 2 cups sugar and 1 package of Kool-Aid. Stir well.
  • Attach a nail to one end of a string and pencil to the other end of the string.
  • Place the pencil on the mouth of the jar so the nail hangs down into the thick sugar without touching the bottom of the jar.
  • Place the jar in a warm place and let it stand for a few days. The water evaporates and colorful rocky sugar crystals form on the string.
